We take pride in serving you wholesome ingredients, preparing recipes accurately and providing nutritional analysis and ingredient statements through our online menus and nutrition calculator. From our General Manager to our front line servers, we work carefully to address food allergies, celiac diets, or other special dietary needs. We want to meet one-on-one with anyone who has individual dining needs to ensure that your dining experience is safe, delicious, and social. If you have a food allergy/special diet concern, please call or send us a note using the feedback form.
The Simple Zone station in the Dining Center was designed to allow students with a gluten dietary restriction to dine comfortably. This allows students to make safe choices while still having the freedom to dine with their friends. If you are unsure of the ingredients in an item available please ask a staff member for assistance. If you don't see an item that you need or if you have a special request, please let us know.
Menu items with the vegetarian icon contain no meat, fish or poultry, or any meat products such as soup base. Our vegetarian offerings meet the needs of lacto-ovo vegetarians and may include eggs and/or dairy products.
Vegan offerings contain no meat, fish, eggs, milk or other animal-derived products such as honey.
Meet the Dietitian
Your onsite general manager and chef can assist you with the majority of dietary restrictions for food allergies, celiac disease, and other medical conditions. Please get in touch with them prior to the start of school and make sure there’s a plan in place for you.
